GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is drafting new deer license goals for the next five years, and fewer deer gun tags likely will be the reality for the foreseeable future.
DULUTH, Minn. -- Citizen advisory panels convened by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in northeastern Minnesota have recommended a range of deer population goals -- from no change in some units to 50 percent increases in others -- as part of a statewide effort to reassess deer population goals.
Decline in gun tags contributes to 60 percent success rate, up from 55 percent in 2013.
North Dakota deer hunters shot about 26,300 deer for a success rate of 60 percent during the 2014 deer gun hunting season, the state Game and Fish Department announced this week.
BISMARCK, N.D. -- The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has dropped a proposal to limit deer hunters to one deer license next fall, in part because of an outcry of opposition during the public input process.
That means deer hunters in North Dakota will retain the opportunity to apply for rifle and muzzleloader lottery licenses and purchase archery tags over the counter.

COTTON, Minn. — Minnesota’s firearms deer opener came whooshing in brisk and breezy Saturday morning. Daylight found Bob Essler of Sauk Center, Minn., in his enclosed deer stand several feet off the ground near Cotton. Even in the sturdy stand, the wind was a factor.
“This thing is rockin’,” said Essler, 76. “First time it’s ever done that.”
Q. It is not uncommon to find antlers lying on the forest floor in the spring. Why do buck deer, bull moose and other antlered species shed their antlers?
A. Annual cycles in deer antlers are related to the changing seasons. Deer have adapted their physiology and behavior to respond to seasonal changes, including antler growth and shedding.
UND is taking applications from bow hunters interested in one of five archery deer permits available again this fall on 160 acres of land the university owns along the Forest River northwest of Inkster, N.D.
